Srinagar: The Communist Party of India (M) senior leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Monday demanded repatriation of Professors who are demanding their transfer from Leh and Kargil in Union Territory (UT) of Ladakh to Kashmir University (KU).
Atleast 15 Assistant Professors, of KU, who had been posted at the Leh and Kargil campuses of the varsity since 2015, are demanding their repatriation for the last one and half years, without yielding any results, Tarigami said in a statement this afternoon.
“Following Jammu and Kashmir’s bifurcation, KU’s Leh and Kargil campuses were transferred to the University of Ladakh. But as per the provisions of the Reorganization Act, all government employees’ preferences were sought. These assistant professors had also sought repatriation to the KU. While the University of Ladakh has issued a no-objection certificate (NOC) in favour of their repatriation, so-far the KU has reportedly refused to grant these professors their transfers, citing non-availability of posts in the varsity”, he said.
